    Hello all

    A couple of months back, I posted a search on the old site, for a place to spend my tailgating, when I joined the Texans for the game against Miami....I was asked to wait till it came a bit closer....so I did :-D

    Here we go again....

    Im a 26 yr old Danish Texan fan. Fan since I listended to the Texans select David Carr. Im coming to the states with 4 friends, one Texan convert(formerly Redskins....), 1 49'er and 2 Steelers fans, and Ive decided to prove to them, what tailgating is like when its Texa(n)s sized. I hope that you guys can help me make that happen....

    Last time I talked to people a guy called Tedc said I could join his crew, but Im not sure, if that offers still standing....If anybody could help me make my friends and my trip to Houston more memorable please shout out, it will be greatly appreciated. I will, for the game be joining the 117 bull pen section, which I heard is pretty....ehrm....festive :-D

    Anyways hope you guys can help me....please

    Peter, the danish texan

    I can't help you, personally, but bump this thread a few times tomorrow to keep it on the first page of new posts and I'm sure you'll get plenty of help.

    Good luck! :fans::fans:

    Bring whatever you want. We have a pretty good time. We have a Pinata for the kids, Bull Pen shots for the adults, bean bag toss game for the Buckeyes, the Bull Pen band will stop by and play a few tunes, and misting fan tent for when it is hot.

    See some of the pics of our past tailgates at www.texansbullpen.com.

    As a fan who was there for 5 years this is by far one of the best tailgates, and everyone there will make you feel at home, so dont miss this one, seriously.
    The Danish beer could be fun as I know there are some that would appreciate it.
    Have fun and enjoy, especially in the wild and wacky Bullpen!

    Man, I guess it's over-exposure to devastating hurricanes, a crumbling economic infrastructure, and both political parties predicting armageddon if the other side wins, but when I first read this headline, just for an instant it actually seemed reasonable that the United States would be taken over by a small scandinavian country sometime in October.

    Guess that probably wouldn't have been in the Texan Tailgate section though.

    So does anyone think someone needs to hit a Shipley donuts to bring some "Danishes" to help the Dane feel at home?

    Hi everyone

    Im sitting in the SF International waiting for my flight to Houston. We will arrive at Houston Saturday at roughly 6am, where I hope to get some shopping done, before the Longhorns-Sooners game starts :)
    Ive only been able to get a red 80 replica so far, so Im still a DeMeco and Mario jersey short :) Are there any good gear shops in the Reliant park or will we have to travel a bit to get a hold of that?
    Ive brought a couple of bottles of the best danish Ale(Ale nr. 16 from Refsvindinge brewery) we have, unfortunately the baghandlers have been a bit rough with it, so we will have to get a healthy supply of Carlsberg added aswell, but that should be no problem.
    My friends and I are looking forward to tailgating with all of you guys, and watching us get our first win, at the turning point of the season :fans: 12-4 here we go :)
